An Amway event disguised as an afternoon tea social
Almost as soon as we signed up with Amway the arrogant prick who sponsored us said we had to immediately start having functions at our house. Invite people to sign up as Amway IBO’s or purchase products from us.
Seeing as how we’d already been down the Amway trail before I didn’t want to scam anyone into signing up for Amway knowing they’d lose money. I didn’t want to buy the lousy overpriced Amway products myself, let alone try to convince anyone else to buy that shit. The upline bastards kept riding Ambot’s ass to have an “event” at our house and it wasn't too long before Ambot announces that we’re having an afternoon tea social at our house and the date he’s chosen. Someone upline has a makeup kit full of Artistry products and we can “rent” it for the afternoon and the arrogant prick’s wife will be there to assist with makeup application. Ambot has arranged for a variety of Amway products that he hasn’t already stocked the house with that we can borrow. Then Ambot wants me to invite as many women as I know to come and try the makeup.
Two friends showed up out of about 50 invites and one actually bought some stuff.
Ambot’s friend arrived and signed up to be an IBO. If Ambot was in, that was good enough for him. This was our only downline and he quit and got refunded a couple of weeks later after someone upline phoned to chew him out for missing a meeting.
The pompous sack of shit Platinum with his wife and two teenagers in tow showed up. The sack of shit made it a HUGE point out of saying he normally doesn’t attend events like this. Yeah, well who invited you, asshole? Oh, I guess Ambot probably did because he actually likes you. The sack of shit’s son and daughter must have been bored to death. When you hit that age you don’t always want to go out visiting with mommy and daddy. They headed into our backyard to play catch with the dog.
And here I’ll say something nice. The Platinum’s wife and teenagers are lovely, decent people (or maybe that's all part of the Amway act when out in public). I do pity them for having to put up with that asshole especially after listening to him rant at Amway meetings where he all but called his future wife a whore before he met her and changed her.
Afterwards everyone congratulated Ambot on what a wonderful job he’d done because one person bought products and he signed up one new IBO.
And that was as good as it ever got.
